    It is too late to book a place for this particular session, sorry about that.

    A huge number of organisations have recently been forced to move towards staff working from home- in whole or in part- for the first time. Most have never planned for this, and are suddenly having to consider how to access computer files and programs from outside the office, and how to communicate with staff and volunteers from afar. For many, this is a daunting task- not least because of the need to take into account complexities around computer security.

    This short session aims to give guidance on some of the key issues that need to be considered, including:

    • how to properly share files in a secure manner;
    • how to access programs installed on machines in your office from afar;
    • properly setting up video conferencing to ensure your privacy;
    • how to store and share passwords securely; and
    • returning to the office - securing your systems.

    This session is a companion piece to our Computer and online security basics session - you need not have attended that session prior to this one, and attendees of that session will gain a lot from attending this one.

    Who should attend?

    This course is open to all, but will be of particular relevance to trustees, staff and volunteers who work with computers but aren't in IT-related roles.

    Feedback from our Computer and online security basics session

    • "I shared the presentation with colleagues and there are at least two who want to attend a future course."
    • "More organisations need to go to this."
    • "Relaxed atmosphere and informal. Great information presented in layman's terms."
